CARE AND CONCERN

 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly and whoever sows generously will reap generously.  Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give not reluctantly or under compulsion for God loves a cheerful giver.  And God is able to bless you abundantly so that in all things at all times having all that you need you will abound in every good work. 

Corinthians 9: 6 – 8

Every year the group runs Lent Lunches with proceeds being donated to the Bishop’s Lenten Charity Appeal.

The Group is currently running a series of talks titled Making a Difference – members of the congregation talk about their role in the workplace contributing to humanitarian or environmental developments.

A one off event following the Easter bombings in Sri Lanka raised over 4000CHF for a project aimed at post trauma support.  Members of the congregation provided a traditional meal and entertainment.
